OF our first stay in Italy
The memory lasts as long as life;
'Tis like some joyous ecstasy,
Of which, though past, our speech is ever rife.

A youth ('tis said) the cold north quitted,
Meaning one summer to remain;
But Rome till old he never quitted,
Captive, like Merlin, held by magic chain.

Its glorious sun so penetrates,
Its art claims faith to such excess,
Vision that in the soul creates
Th' ideal world which all men's hearts possess.

Of our first stay in Italy
The memory lasts as long as life;
'Tis like some joyous ecstasy,
Of which, though past, our speech is ever rife.
